This doesn't help right now, but in TSVN 1.4.0 (nightly build) you can
drag folders into the commit dialog if they are from the same
repository, so you could open the commit dialog at 'include' and then
drag 'src/my_project' onto the file list.

Unfortunately I can't recommend you use the nightly at the moment
because it uses the SVN trunk build which is not stable, and it makes
your WC incompatible with all 1.3.x clients.

You may be able to use the command line client to get you out of a hole.
You can pass multiple items to svn commit, so you could pass include and
src/my_project. I haven't tried it.
